Week is one of honors for Miss-Lou

It’s not every day that you get the label “perfect.”

But that’s just what officials from Rentech said of Natchez this week. Adams County is perfectly located, perfectly accessible and perfectly ready, Rentech President Hunt Ramsbottom said.

Well, we’ll take it. When a major industry interested in locating in our area is ready to pour out praise it says great things about the future of our area, with or without Rentech.

But Rentech wasn’t the only group pouring praise on the Miss-Lou last week.

Let’s review some of the other good news from the week.

4The Concordia Parish Library received the Distinguished Partners in Education award from the state Department of Education.

The local library — with branches in Vidalia and Ferriday — is the first Louisiana public library to receive the award.

Director Amanda Taylor and staff realize that their libraries can be a crucial part of education. A partnership between a school and a library is a no-brainer. We are glad our local library sees the obvious and makes the best of it.

4The Natchez National Historical Park received a regional award for its annual Junior Ranger Camp. The weeklong camp teaches children about the area and its history, giving them hands-on experiences.

The staff at the park is beyond creative when it comes to educational programming, and they very are deserving of the award.

Life in the Miss-Lou may not be perfect, but it can be as close as possible with contributions from our fine residents. We’re sure next week will be even better.
